First, this is on sale in Canadian dollars which is a huge bonus! Second, the history and story behind this product relates so much to what I look for when collecting the fashions I chose to invest in which I absolutely love. Plus, it's good for you!
So what exactly is Kishu Binchotan?
"Kishu Binchotan is a finely crafted traditional activated charcoal made from Holm Oak, a hardwood native to the Wakayama prefecture in Japan. Its production dates back to the Tokugawa period (1603 - 1868) and the methods to produce it have remained unchanged over the years. During a two-week period skilled artisans carbonize the charcoal by heating it to 1200 oC then quickly cool it, a process formally called ‘nerashi’. Nerashi creates billions of cavities that give Kishu Binchotan a negative ion charge that draws impurities and naturally enriches conventional tap water."
This is by far my favourite of the 3 products I have tried because you can use it in so many ways for different effects which I think is cool. Some examples of how you can use this activated charcoal are by making the following:
- Detox drinks (lemonade being my favourite)
- Teeth whitener
- Purifying shampoo
- Deep cleaning body scrub
It can also be used as as antidote for drugs and chemicals, rids of bad breath, body odor and skin ailments. There is anti-aging properties and it's good for your heart :)
Literally just tried this mask before work this morning and so far so good! Sometimes my skin gets super tight after using certain masks with similar healing elements, and I hate that feeling of not being able to move my face. I am so happy to say that the over tightness didn't happen to me today and was surprising super gentle with powerful effects. Suggested for both men and women because why the f*ck not?
What is the Charcoal Detox Mask and what is it used for?
